Engagement to Celebrate :: Kaitlyn & Jacob

Kaitlyn and Jacob met on their first day training for a mission trip that they had both signed up for. They were headed to teach an english summer camp for Chinese children in Beijing. During this training course and five-week trip overseas, their friendship blossomed. They supported each other in one of the hardest experiences they had ever encountered in their young lives. Upon returning to the states, their friendship grew into something more. Jacob confessed his feelings for Kaitlyn and even though she admits she was scared to take the next step, they finally agreed to go on a date. 

Kaitlyn is going to school to become a secondary english teacher and Jacob will graduate with a Bachelors degree in Biblical Studies in May. They are both students at Dallas Baptist University and passionate about helping people; especially through overseas missions. 

They are extremely excited to finish school, travel more, and serve others locally and overseas. Their hearts are so big for the people and places that God puts on this earth. They hope that their relationship is a testimony to God's faithfulness, and they are so thankful for the opportunity to love one another and build a life and family together. 

Just like the rest of us, they know the wind could blow them anywhere... and that is the beauty of it all!
